Showing Compassion – the Budhist the Human Way
Last week a pick up truck carrying a monk in robe pulled up to the shelter and the monk got out carrying a bleeding dog.
He explained that the dog had disappeared three days ago and when he’d come back, the dog was no longer able to use his left rear leg.
The dog was in so much pain so we gave it a mild sedative and pain killer and proceeded with an exam. Exam revealed bite wounds all over the leg and we suspect that the leg is broken in two places. We bandaged the leg up and are sending the dog off to xrays shortly, and the dog will go into surgery soon!
Three days later the monk returned today to visit the dog! We were touched by the visit.

Michael " Being part of the team I think, was so much more effective. If alone, I would only have given a street dog some food for few days, not knowing what else to do in a strange town when seeing a sick dog. Joining with the other volunteers at CfD, I was part of a steady approach. You give dogs some hope for a better life and don't have to disappoint them when they might wait on you, when your plane already took off. Here is a team and it's just another friendly face, the next (holiday) volunteer will take up your work. [More about Michael]"
